Bast barely does anything...she does give advance warnings and decide who gets powers but eh the Gods work differently in comics where plenty of powerful beings are running around.
Then they do in their corresponding mythology.
Don't give me that BS that everything they have is because different gods provided food, knowledge, and Vibranium.
That's Bullshit especially because now low and behold Thanos invasion and Tetus weakass rebellion and they "struggled" to get past this because the gods are gone,? We just had a Wakanda identity crisis in S1 and now he is wanting to do it again
Not trying to get into any sort of religions debate here... merely stating that people who have a belief in their religion will pretty much always have this belief that their god or gods have helped them. It's part of the reason you pray to and worship them. If they believed their gods didn't do jack, after a certin point no one would bother worshipping them. If you're talking to the high priest of the Panther clan then yeah... he'll probably give his god or gods a lot of credit. That's what high priests do. They're sort of hype men for their god and their religion. Whether or not they're actually factually accurate is another matter... but the point is that's what they believe.
How is this all that different from Hickman's cycle of history stuff back in Future Foundation which placed Bast at the center of everything?
We aren't seeing a direct recounting of events anyway(a flashback). T'Challa is telling a story to Storm about his gods.
Who I take it are going be the characters of interest in this arc.
And I am not in the least worried or concerned about named characters taking credit/shine/whatever away from the faceless masses.
I'm not reading the comic for said faceless masses in any event.
When it comes down to it there have been two sides of Wakanda on one end they are supposed to be really spiritual, but also technically advanced. However, they have been prone to bouts of WTF like in Priest run all the drama with Nakia village and the Jabari or Coates run with Tetu . The longest theme is that they have lost their way that's the reason Kilmonger and MBaku have revolted. Could be the reason why they are no longer around. I wonder if they will retcon the White Gorilla orisha into Thoth one of Thoth forms is a ape? I wonder if Coates is taking the American Gods route and the Wakandan deities are in mortal form?
Either way I'm glad this aspect of the mythos is being fleshed out a bit more. I always felt it was somewhat under explored.
